We just had another great meal today in Central Square, Cambridge. We served up hot grilled vegetable sandwiches with homemade guacamole and beet/veggie soup. Our street medic friends came out to join us, providing jackets and hot herbal tea. We were glad to serve so many of our neighbors a hot, healthy, tasty, vegan meal.
This week, we collected donations for a special purpose. All $107 generously donated by the people of Cambridge, MA today have gone to the Durham Solidarity Center’s Freedom Fighter Bond Fund “in its mission to oppose state repression and support those who act in good conscience to advance the cause of justice and equity.” They have issued an urgent appeal for support. We stand in solidarity with them. If you’d like, you can donate to this cause as well.
Boston Food Not Bombs has been putting on a weekly meal every Saturday afternoon in Central Square, Cambridge for a couple of months now. Let’s keep that momentum going. We’d love for you to come join us! We have a brand new banner and fliers (pictured). Come on down, grab a bite to eat, and if you’d like to, you can participate in meal preparation, serving, and/or cleanup.
We’re excited to be growing as a group, expanding our networks, and obtaining the equipment we need to serve our community. We’re proud to stand in solidarity with our neighbors, and help each other out as we can. We look forward to several events this spring where we’d like to serve meals. We would love to put on a second weekly meal in or around Boston, and in particular we’d like to serve in Boston itself (since we have been mostly in Cambridge so far). Check back in soon to see how that all goes, or get involved to be a part of the action!
